Every possible test Is being made to
determine if the water from the city
water works plant Is Impure or not,
and so far the tests have shown that
the water is not the cause of tho scare
of typhuid that is going around. In
case it were the water there would
probably be two hundred and fifty
cases Instead of the six or seven act
ual Cases that have been reported.
Water Commissioner Welch has
made an actual (est that shows con
clusively that there Is no seepage
from the sewers Into tho wells as has
bfcen reported by many. The test was
made da, the shallowest well that Is
being used, also the closest to the sow
ers, and with a forty-eight hour pump
ing test on the well It showed that
there was no possibility of there be
ing any seepage. Tho test was made
by digging down to the surface water
at the well, and coloring the water,
so that If there was any seepage the
colored water would get Into tho
pumps. The water was watched close
ly for forty-eight hours and none of it
went through tho pumps. The well
was also tested to find out If It leaked
any place and It was found to be all
right. It is seventy feet deep and tho
seepage would have to go to that depth
to get into the well, in which case it
would be well filtered.
All of the old wells and the shal
low wells have been cut off and no
wator Is being used froni them. Six
wells at the southeast corner of tho
plant which have been abandoned for
several months were disconnected so
that there could be no possibility of
the water from them being used. These
wells range in depth from thirty-eight
to forty-three feet.
Samples of the water were sent off
some time ngo to the state bacterio
logical laboratories of which Dr. Wild
has charge to have It analyzed, and
It was sent back because the labora
tories were so busy that they could
not make the test before tho middle
of the month. Saturday evening Com
missioner Welch sent a sample to Dr.
Waite of tho state university and it
will take about a week Jo hear fiom
that. Tests of the water have tfeen
made by local physicians and they
have so far failed to find anything
wrong with it.
A number of people have spoken
about the water having a smell when
it is freshly drawn fromt he hydrant.
This is due to the fact that there is
iron in it and not because it is im
puref or is in any way contaminated.
All water that is pumped through Iron
pipes has mpre or less smell from
coming in "Contact with the Iron,
whether it be city water or pumped
from a private well. According to the
statement of Dr. Lucas, city physician,
there is no danger from the wator, so
fnr ns ran p rlptermlnpil. anil Mint Is
I also the opinion' of! the other physi
cians of the city. He, however, says
that there might be some danger from
the milk supply, although the dairies
of the immediate vicinity of the city
have been Inspected and found to be
clean. Investigation will be extend
ed to. the 'dairies in the country that
bring milk into tho city.

has been accepted as the standard
of wagon value everywhere. No model of
the Weber wagon was ever so good as the

Tho Columbus wagon this year is tho equal of tho
Weber wagon in every way; where quality and
features aro concerned, tho Weber and Columbus
wagons aro twins. Ono good feature common to
both is tho International fifth wheel, making theso
